Sofitel Opens in Kuala Lumpur

Malaysian tourism gets a much-needed boost amid a humdrum economy with the opening of Sofitel in the capital. Located in an affluent neighborhood that serves as the home of some of Malaysia’s leading personalities, the 312-room Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara was designed by Wilson Associates, the same team behind the St. Regis Singapore.

Local tradition is the focus of the hotel, with the wau bulan (moon kite) occupying pride of place through an Eiffel Tower-shaped artwork. The fusion of French and Malaysian art can be seen in the impressive art pieces scattered all over the property, which is comprised of two luxe condo blocks, two office towers, a hotel, and a lifestyle mall.

Guests’ comfort is key, with all rooms equipped with Sofitel’s renowned MyBed™, a mattress and a set of multiple thread count, easy-to-the-touch linens. In-room amenities come from premium French brands such as Lanvin and Hermès. The cherry on top is access to the Club Millésime executive lounge where guests can have complimentary breakfast and refreshments while overlooking Kuala Lumpur’s glittering skyline.

Be spoilt for choice with the property’s five restos and bars, which includes Chinese restaurant Wan Chun Ting and Cantonese dining joint Ten Thousand Springs pavilion. Or, unwind with a glass of wine at Le Bar.

The outdoor pool, wellness hub SO SPA, sauna and steam rooms, and gym SO FIT are more than enough to keep guests busy. Those who don’t like to stay in will have easy access to retail hub KL Sentral as well as one of the business districts, Petaling Jaya.

From now until December 1, prospective guests can enjoy a getaway and complimentary breakfast for only US$93. Visit the property’s website to know more.
